Bon Scott, born Ronald Belford Scott, is one of Perth’s claims to fame. He was by all accounts a raucous party animal with the reputation of being “socially maladjusted.” Australians love a tragic hero. The iconic lead singer of AC/DC who died in 1980, is buried in the Fremantle Cemetery. The place of his memorial has been listed as being of historical significance in the National Trust of Australian (WA) register. Over the years people have made the pilgrimage to his place of rest in their droves.

My grandmother was a wise woman. She had many sayings, among them “if you can’t say anything nice, don’t say anything at all” and this one:
Better Days? I tend to optimism, so I feel everyday can be a “better day”. It’s not what you do but how you approach life. It could be something you do with a friend, a partner or even just yourself. It’s not necessarily where you go, where you eat or where you travel and it can be as simple as a trip to the movies.
”So long and thanks for all the fish” was the last ever message the dolphins in Douglas Adams’ “The Hitchhikers’ Guide to the Galaxy” left for the earthlings before vanishing.
I once was the queen of the “mix tape” back when the “mix tape” was a thing. I had an ear for a good mix. I knew just the right track to follow on from whatever came before. My fingers were deft with the record/pause combo that made for smooth change-overs along with a skill for “fading out” the previous song or at the end of a tape that was not quite long enough.
